Do you need support for an illness or disorder, but can’t make it to an in-person appointment?
Are you a busy stay-at-home or working parent, and don’t have time to schedule or keep doctor appointments?
Telehealth (or telemedicine) is a fairly recent innovation. Telehealth allows the facilitation of health-related services to patients via live video conferencing or via phone. Thanks to modern technology, just about everyone in the U.S. has a smartphone or tablet capable of video chat. This ease of access to make video calls has revolutionized the health industry, allowing counselors to interact with patients through a convenient phone call.
Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is a hassle for you. If you lack the time or resources to use public transportation, are physically disabled or live in a remote area, telehealth appointments can help by removing the need to leave your home to attend an appointment.
In the United States, approximately 80 million people have inadequate health insurance, or no health insurance at all. At Compass Counseling, we offer a sliding fee schedule, if cost is a barrier to you getting help.
If you want to see a therapist with easy access from the comfort of your home, then consider contacting Compass Counseling for an appointment.
